Part of my Original Master Rescue Project.
This is the second tape I ever made, with brand-new equipment and no experience, and still in remarkable condition. If I had to go back, I'd use cardioid heads - the Greek was so small that shotguns could focus on such a small section of the stack that you might miss out on a full mix ofa whole band member; and you got less audience, which is kind of the point of an Audience tape.
An odd setlist. Widely praised as a best of these three Greeks, of the tour, kind of thing. Nice Bucket -> Franklin's, 2nd set opens with pleasant mini-space weirdness, has an unusually place Deal. Great post-drums 2nd set.
The opening of Watchtower was a moment so electric that all your hair stood out from your body, half of it from the band's playing energy, half audience adrenaline; it hit like a whirlwind. Many compliments on Archive.org: "...people were freaking out," "Amazing show," And after the show, many looks and comments along the lines of "...How about that shit!"
Not being very bright or experienced, I wasted tape on people chatting, an inclination I would come to regret the next night as I ran out and had to scramble. But, it allowed me to include a few minutes of the audience smoking and socializing after the end of Set 1, so I've done so, as I find it a pleasant auditory experience.
Previously unreleased Cassette original master. Nakamichi CM-300s/CP4 Shotguns -> Sony Walkman Pro/ (Triad Metal-Position MG-X 90 for Set 1 and Maxell MX 90 for Set 2) -> JVC TD-W354 -> Zoom H6 -> WAV 96/24 -> Audacity -> FLAC 96/24.
Only posting in 96/24 to keep the sound quality up, and because I have a big pile to get through... feel free to down sample it with r8brain (a free download,) if you need, but I officially object. (h/t weallen, bt.etree, for r8brain x-ref).
